Make a flute yourself, the hard work is done.
This is a great way to save some money and make your flute special and one of a kind and it is also wonderful way to get in touch with your very own personal flute. Craft it yourself. All the hard work is done. These are pre-shaped, glued together, assembled and tuned. They can be played right out of the box as received. The exterior of the flute is rough or square but the fipple hole is cut, the finger holes are already spaced out and drilled. The block or body has the air channel cut in it as well.
All that you need to do is to do some shaping and then fine sanding and smoothing of the body, and some filing and final shaping of the mouthpiece. The block can be cut or carved as you desire. Add some wood finish or oil and you are ready to go. Decorate with beads, carvings, wood burning, paint or feathers. The flute blanks are in two types, either Western Red Cedar square blank or Alaskan Yellow Cedar in a round blank. A block, fingering charts, and instructions are included with each kit. The square ones also come with a leather tie. When it is finished you will have a flute that would normally cost $150 to $300 depending on the key.
